that's subject to review by something called the committee on foreign investments in the united states. a big committee that reviews this stuff. the treasury secretary heads it up. when that committee was reviewing this deal with, congress went absolutely nuts over it it. in the end, that deal did not go through. that was in 2005. china was not allowed to come in and buy that company. now they are trying good. they are in the process of trying to buy a canadian oil company. but again, the committee on foreign investments in the u.s. has some jurisdiction here because the canadian company does a lot of business in our gulf of mexico. this is a chinese government-owned giant oil company trying to buy american oil infrastructure. think the deal is going to go through this time? it's a $15 billion oil deal. you think it's going to go through? it didn't in 2005. hount this new version? since the last time the united states said no, cnooc is famous for going into business with iran. they are in the process of developing a huge iranian natural gas field. i know it's china and china doesn't fo
, that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. to us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. >> the film was initially to have thought to have provoked the attack on benghazi, libya, tuesday. ambassador chris stevens, former navy s.e.a.l.s chris woods and glen doherty were killed in that attack along with sean smith. not long after the attack reports surfaced that it might have been the premeditated work of a radical islamic group retaliating for an american drone strike which had killed an al qaeda command leader. libyan officials said they had taken four men into custody in connection with the attack. they also said they thought the attack was meant to drive a wedge between americans and libyans. this may be true. but even with all that has happened in libya, the bigger challenge for the obama administration may be with what's taking place in egypt. where even before the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya protestors stormed the emba
are bringing on the productive nominee. person you want to be president of the united states. my god did we need laughs. well, actually, i think this jon stewart says. everyone will poke funnel of it i saw him more as a warm jump for marco rubio. he was earnest. this was a warm-up. more like don rickles than american politics. you have -- geraldo, hold on. you have said anything similar about the following liberal people in celebrity don. >> this isn't about liberal and conservative. this is about my wanting mitt romney to be presented in a way -- romney's speech was terrific. he was strong and humane. >> is he not romney. is he an actor. >> whether you have this kind of distraction where is he making sex jokes about the president of the united states. there is no nobility there. >> laura: okay. >> tongue in cheek are brilliantly clever satire. it's nothing. just a guy going up vamping. i could go up and vamp for 12 minutes i could be funnier than that what it looked like was an 82-year-old man who lost his way. that's what it looked like. >> laura: i love you, geraldo, you could never have
with an incumbent president of the united states. i've got a very effective campaign that's doing a very good job. but not everything i say is elegant, and i want to make it very clear, i want to help 100% of the american people. >> all right. just because i have no discipline, richard wolffe, take 20 seconds to double down on those comments. your response. >> well, you're not tied if you're at least five points down in ohio. you can't win if you're that far down in ohio. both candidates, let's face it, the president and mitt romney, have made more than their fair share of mistakes here. the difference here is that mitt romney's mistakes are of his own making, by and large. there aren't any more feet that he can shoot himself in. and the problem is that the tax situation, his comments have come from him, and the president can argue, well, you know, you can disagree with all of my approaches, but there were other things at play in the economic crisis that led to the unemployment we've got. that's the difference we're at right now. >> sam stein, it seems he sort of blamed himself for it and said it
of the united states off the ground. i'll talk to the man who did it. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with important news just in to "the situation room." our brand-new poll shows president obama receiving a significant bounce from the democratic national convention. he now leads mitt romney 52% to 46%. that's among likely voters nationwide. all this according to our brand-new cnn orc poll. let's get to our chief national correspondent, john king, over at the magic wall. >> a six-point national lead. the president benefited most from his convention. let's look deeper at the other numbers. let's look here -- here's one of the big reasons why. this is among men. the republicans almost always have a big advantage among men. the president, this is a tie essentially. the president with a one-point lead among men. but look at the difference. going into the democratic convention, it was governor romney who had a big lead a 12-point lead among men. that's one of the reasons the president comes out of his convention in much stronger shape. then you ask people who's best in
security at greater risk. >> last friday, mitt romney brought up the president of the united states, his birth certificate. they can't get away from that, but wait a minute, it was just a joke. but the day after the republican convention, speakers lined up to question president obama's americanness. is he really an american? president obama has been president of the united states for nearly four years and republicans are still questioning his values as an american citizen. it's the twisted version of the truth and it was embraced by everybody in the room. >> barack obama has a problem with the american dream. >> obama is stifling the american dream, primarily because it isn't his dream. >> what this administration has in mind for america isn't a renewal. it's a great leveling out. >> barack obama seems intent on enrolling more people on food stamps. >> president obama began his presidency with an apology tour. >> i know you're about ready to throw up, but please bear with me. it wouldn't be the republican national convention without more dishonesty about welfare and medicare. the republi
for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,
much. may god bless you. may god bless the american people. and may god bless the united states of america. >>> the obama campaign senior adviser says don't expect the same level of voter enthusiasm for president obama this year like it was in 2008. >> this election was always going to be close because we live in a closely divided country. i remind people all the time that just four years ago everyone was talking about the president's landslide and he got 53% of the vote. so let's understand that we live in a very closely divided electorate. we have for quite some time, and this election was, quite frankly, always going to be close. >> meanwhile, mitt romney's reportedly spending the next few days preparing for the upcoming presidential debates which begin next month. as the party gets ready for its national convention in charlotte, north carolina, preparations are well under way at the time warner cable arena in charlotte. hello to you, chris. >> reporter: alex, good afternoon. the opening of the democratic national convention is still two days away but there's still plenty pla
and protests in many different countries. i've made it clear that the united states has a profound respect for people of all faiths. we stand for religious freedom. and we reject the den grags of any religion, including islam. >> just as freedom of speech has consequences so do all aspects of the democratic prospects. we watched as high hopes as the very same countries that have been burning american flags this week embrace democracy during the arab spring. how do we balance this tolerance against our own country's very real need for security? these are complicated questions. life or death questions. ones that we rely on our presidents and their administrations to address on our behalf. this is the work of the commander in chief. violence in streets across the arab world in the past days should remind us that these clearly are not abstract policy questions. they're not just about etiology. this was somehow, it seems, lost on the republican presidential challenger and his foreign policy team this week. governor mitt romney rushed out of the gate with this statement late on tuesday night. sa
in the time when the united states was a slave republic. with that thinking it is what allowed for blacks to be -- their labor, native americans, dispossessed of their land. native americans should be dispossessed of their property because they hadn't created an effective capitalist society in a thousand years. >> the thing i love about i'm ran is ultimately in her old age she took social security. you know, i suppose there is a story there about sort of -- how -- you know, we have this sense that on the one hand we don't know -- we want to make it all on our own and built that ourselves. we do tend to avail ourselves of the help, assistance, that exists. matt, you wrote a little bit about this in your piece this week around economic determi determineism. i love this. i never took the -- practically guaranteed student loan, never enjoyed the mortgage interest deduction, that i as a taker, do. you are worried about government spending. yet, there was still something that -- did not sit right about this. >> it is the -- statements that because you fall into this income gap, that your vote,
in the path of isaac. >>> controversial arizona sheriff joe arpaio is off the hook. the united states attorneys office said it will not file any charges against arpaio or his staff. they were accused of using county issued credit cards and funds. arpaio said he's happy with the decision. a second police officer is put on leave after a disturbing incident in st. paul, minnesota, tachl a look. you see one of the officers kicking a suspect in the chest while he was on the ground. an investigation is under way. police are asking the public not to rush to judgment. the suspect was allegedly threatening a woman in the neighborhood. >>> to politics now and the democrats are on deck. their national convention starts tuesday, just five days after the republicans wrapped up theirs. cnn political editor paul steinhauser is in charlotte, north carolina this morning, site of the democratic national convention. paul, good morning to you. so lay out some of the highlights for us, if you will. >> good morning, randi. democrats are going to say the theme of their convention is americans coming togethe
of the united states. >> i heightened it up. >> if you listen to what he said in florida from that fund-raiser thing, he continually refers to "those people." "those people." that ain't going to fly. >> yeah. >> "those people." >> that was bad. >> like some alien tribe among us who are just lunging for food stamps. nobody wants to be born poor in the united states of america. >> yeah. >> there's a way to do it, but -- >> i can tell you my dad also, again, unemployed for 18 months. i'll guarantee you he didn't like going to the mississippi unemployment office to get a check to keep gas in the car. >> you think people like going to food pantries? >> no. it was humiliating. he did it because he had to do it. but, again, though, i think, though, there is -- i think this is a line of demarcation. and i think it's a good opportunity. i told a good friend of ours in the romney campaign, i said, the tape's not your problem. the libyan press conference, you lost more independent voters with that stupidity than that tape. you could actually use the tape as a positive. >> let's get to massachusett
in the united states states. it would be practically anywhere because the care of the child is the responsibility of the child's parent. in this case, the doctors treating baby m decided she was so sick that damage to her brain was so profound and permanent that there was no point taking extensive and invasive measures to prolong her life. the parents said that it was a matter of love. it was a matter of faith, as you mentioned, that the child should be kept alive. they went to court. they went to court in edmonton, alberta. to the supreme court of canada, and the court decided the child's interest was not in having her life artificially prolonged. the judges heard the case and decided against the parents. it is a strange case. all the stranger because the reason that baby was so sick was because of the parents themselves. >> and so these parents, 34 years old, they are charged with assault and negligence for failing to provide the necessities of life. might there be other charges that are going to be more severe that are down the line? >> that is what this case really turns
china, brazil, india, and russia along with the united states share power. remember that the world before colonialism was like that. a world in which you had a number of big empires, the chinese, the indians, you had the empires of the americas. you had -- so a western civilization was one among many. it's an odd swoiituation that a single country, america, dominates the world so much. we have an outside standard of living, an enormous military presence around the world so i think obama thinks that's globally unjust. he'd like to knock america off its pedestal so we're no longer number one. but we are just one nation among many sharing powers with other big countries. >> that was director of the controversial documentary "2016: obama's america." you can see the rest of the interview on our blog at cnn.com. also, many of you weighed in on this on twitter. keep those tweets coming to me, @randikayecnn. thank you for those. >>> a possible big problem for pro football players as replacement refs take the field for the regular season kickoff. we'll look at the controversy and more. ♪
have a campaign tied with an incumbent president of the united states. >> he could be right or he could be incredibly disastrously wrong. make no mistake the 47% statements were a game changer. there is no longer any doubt what the two sides believe. the comments allowed president obama to go out on a message of inclusiveness, a message you'll hear a lot more about in the next 46 days. >> the values we believe in just don't belong to the workers, the 53%, the 47%, rich or poor or 99%. these are american values. they belong to all of us! >> now, compare those comments with mitt romney's final words on the hidden video from florida. >> one of the benefits is eating the world's best dessert, which i will. >> romney may have eaten the world's best dessert at that fund-raiser but on the campaign trail the only thing he can find right now is raw crow. what's is going to be like the next 46 days? how about this weekend? how is he going to begin to turn it around? the best thing he can do right now is call up tom cruise, the actor, and ask him about that thing he put together, i think a couple
of the united states but more condemning the attack that took place on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. people taking to the streets yesterday in the thousands demanding democracy, but more importantly, demanding an end to these extremist militias whom people and the government here say were behind that attack that took the lives of four americans. at night on friday, hundreds of these pro democracy demonstrators began taking situations into their own hands and storming various headquarters of known militias in the city of benghazi, including the headquarters of the militia, and if you'll remember, the libyan government has said that it has detained individuals who are part of that group in association with the attack on the u.s. consulate although they say the group as a whole was not behind that assault. >> thank you so much for that reporting. meantime, president barack obama and u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton will be heading to new york next week for a meeting of the u.n. general assembly. the violence in the muslim world will likely be high on their talking points. they say the p

and respectfully nowadays in education across this world really and across the united states. [ applause ] and the reality is -- the reality is it's time to let teachers teach again. it's time to let them do what they were trained to do rather than let administrators tell them what to do who haven't been in teaching ever in their lives. time to let politicians take a step back, administrators take a step back, and let teachers have more free will in the classroom and teach the students because we're human beings. we're not products. and that's really important to us, not only as students but to the country for advancement and to develop in the world. >> i'm taking you home with me. [ applause ] luke. >> i'm here with helen. wants to talk about after-school programs. >> well, i just wanted to bring out that colleges like well-rounded kids, students, and i think after-school programs will help us be that. so i'm protesting more after huf school programs for -- they could help us stay out of trouble and learn more than what regular school teaches us. >> more funding for after-school program
